Publisher's Summary

Though the young Warchief Thrall ended the demon curse that had plagued his people for generations, the orcs still wrestle with the sins of their bloody past. As the rampaging Horde, they waged a number of devastating wars against their perennial enemy - the Alliance. Yet the rage and bloodlust that drove the orcs to destroy everything in their path nearly consumed them as well. Long ago, on the idyllic world of Draenor, the noble orc clans lived in relative peace with their enigmatic neighbors, the draenei. 

But the nefarious agents of the Burning Legion had other plans for both of the unsuspecting races. The demon-lord Kil’jaeden set in motion a dark chain of events that would succeed not only in eradicating the draenei, but would forge the orc clans into an single, unstoppable juggernaut of hatred and destruction. An original tale of magic, warfare, and heroism based on the best-selling, award-winning electronic game series from Blizzard.

Good book

Although she is the author, I’m not as crazy about her performance. Would have preferred Scott Brick. Still overall it was a decent performance and a good book.

Christie golden writes wonderful books but she does not narrate them the best she did and all right job but they're better narrators for the World of Warcraft books

Great for lore lovers

Wonderful listen but odd to hear a female read majority Male characters. Decent performance otherwise. Loved this book.

Good story performance was okay.

I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the story but sadly I must say the narrator not one of the best of all the World of Warcraft books that I've listened to. I have all the respect in the world for Christie Golden as I love her stories in the way she writes but I will admit her performance in reading it not quite as good as many of the others but I am still very happy that this book finally came to audiobook, I would still recommend.

Amazing, just one issue.

The story, the writing and details are top notch, i appsalutly love it. The only problem i have is the narration by Christie Golden is very good it falls short because of the female voice telling a story in the perspective of male orcs, it's almost comical to hear her try to use a deep male voice, yet it is still a great performance.

great origin story

kind of a prequel to the first warcraft game, and a great origin story for the orcs.

Shouldn't be missed out on

Loved it. Didn't want it to end. Gives you a nice in-depth look at the carnage back on Draenor.
